It's the week of the NBA Draft and we're in full swing of NBA summer which means that drama is upon us, trades are bound to happen, and endless speculation and rumors will provide constant excitement and anticipation for the next several weeks.

The Jazz will send Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver, Jae Crowder, the 23rd pick in Thursday's draft and a protected 2020 first-round pick to Memphis in exchange for Conley, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Memphis Grizzlies traded away the final piece of the franchise's best years on Wednesday, sending veteran point guard Mike Conley to the Utah Jazz for a trio of players, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press.

Moreover, the Grizzlies have the ability to get an immediate plug and play point guard to replace Conley in the 2019 NBA Draft on June 20 with Murray State's Ja Morant. Rubio is set to enter free agency after his contract expired following the 2018-19 campaign. Utah can now pair Conley up in the backcourt with third-year star Donovan Mitchell, who helped lead the Jazz to a 50-32 record last season.

So much like the Davis deal, the reported Conley trade appears to be a win for both sides.

Conley later tweeted confirmation that he was traded.

The other piece that would nearly have to be involved in order to get Conley to Salt Lake City is Utah's No. 23 overall pick for the upcoming draft. The deal will be complete on July 6.
